Wine Advisor Pick of the Week

Posted by:

Want to know what our experts are drinking? I caught up with Nicole, one of our Wine Advisors, to find out what she has got in her glass this week.


Nik: What’s your pick, Nicole?


Nicole: I have chosen Kriter Brut Blanc de Blancs NV as my pick of the week! I can’t resist a delicious dry sparkling from France like this one!



Nik: You really like this one don’t you. So what’s it like to drink?


Nicole: What I really love is that it is very smooth. It has delicious flavours of granny smith apple, peach and nectarine with a touch of toastiness. The finish is crisp, clean and dry which leaves the mouth feeling refreshed. It’s also drinking really well now so you don’t have to wait for it to cellar.


Nik: What would you pair it with?


Nicole: I would suggest lighter foods such as shellfish and fresh summer vegetables. I’m thinking of something like a prawn salad with snow peas dressed in lime juice with a side of freshly shucked oysters. This gorgeous wine would really bring out the flavours of both the fresh seafood and the crisp fresh peas with the citrus dressing. The lovely soft bead pairs really well with creamy texture of the oysters, the delicate bubbles cleansing the palate and not overpowering the shellfish.


Nik: On what kind of occasion would you drink it?


Nicole: Kriter Brut Blanc de Blancs NV is perfect for any celebration with friends and family, all year round. It makes a perfect pre-dinner aperitif and when the warmer weather rolls around it will be the ideal accompaniment to a lovely picnic. Even in the depths of winter this wine really brings back memories of a fun summer, which I love. Why not give it a try and pop one open?


Nik: Wow Nicole that salad sounds amazing. I will be trying that one in the summer!
